Welcome to Strabane, ‘An Srath Bán’ in Irish, and meaning the Fair River Valley. Bound by the scenic beauty of the Sperrin Mountains, Strabane rests at the meeting point of three rivers- the Mourne, the Finn and the Foyle - and is a town steeped in history and heritage.]

The Strabane Heritage Trail is a self-guided walking tour of approximately 3.5 miles/5.5 kilometres that displays and celebrates the town’s rich heritage and history. The map is aimed at encouraging  the public to step outside and experience some of the delights of the town. Walkers are invited to start their journey of discovery from Railway Street at the Alley Arts and Conference Centre, and follow the town’s historic story by visiting over 28 locations of local interest that spans through the centuries right through to modern times. You will be able to see at first-hand how the town has evolved from its early settlement years to its current form.

The map covers a wider range of themes including the town’s industrial heritage such as the important role Strabane played in the local shirt making industry;  as well as its ancestral heritage and the many famous names associated with the town including Cecil Frances Alexander. It also celebrates and features recent historic additions such as the Let the Dance Begin which was installed to celebrate the new millennium.

The map is available at Strabane Visitor Information Centre, the Strabane Community Library and Visit Derry offices or can be downloaded here.
